NEW Browning 1911-380 Black Label Pro American Flag Pistol
Terry Nelson 02.25.21
Back in about 2015 was the first time I came into contact with the Browning 1911-380 Black Label pistol. A concealed carry student showed up with one on the range. At that time the new offering from Browning has only been on the market for a few months. Suffice it to say I was impressed with the little pistol. Since that time Browning has been steadily adding to their available models of the 1911-380. In the following press release Browning outlines their newest version of the 1911-380 Black Label that has a patriotic twist.
“Browning is pleased to add another striking new Model 1911-380 to the ranks with the new Black Label Pro American Flag model.
At 85% of the size of John M. Browning’s 45 ACP models, the Model 1911-380 Black Label Pro American Flag pistol is perfect for target practice. It’s the right design, with the right features in the right size to manage the snappy 380 ACP round. It features a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel slide and matte black composite frame with a machined 7075 aluminum subframe and slide rails. The rust-resistant barrel measures 3-5/8″ for the compact version and the full size has a 4-1/4″ length. A Picatinny rail is available on the dust cover of both Compact and Full-Size models.
Handsome rosewood-colored grips are emblazoned with a distressed U.S. flag pattern and provide a secure grip. Two 8-round steel magazines and an ABS carry case are also included. MSPR listed at $829.99 – $939.99“
